I received the desk, but was defective in that the holes did not line up. Got a replacement real fast. This desk is nice looking, BUT be aware it is on the small side. Was hoping my tower would fit underneath but its like 2 inches too short for it to fit so it stands outside desk. Other than that, I like it and it matches my room I have it in well.

I ordered this and it shipped in about 4 days to Iowa. The packaging was great. Heavy; 87 lbs. I opened the box outside and brought it in in pieces. There was one small scratch on a corner of one of the shelves, but I placed that against the wall. I installed it in about 15 minutes - I was speeding because I had to run to work and wanted it done to surprise my wife when she got home. I love the desk and I think it should last a lifetime if it is taken care of. I have moved a lot because of the Marine Corps and I see this as a piece that could take a few moves and be fine as long as it is wrapped well. I placed a new all-in-one computer on it and I am buying a 3M slideout keyboard platform to place the keyboard below to allow for more surface work space. There is a 5 inch wide lip on the inside that may make installing it a challenge, but it shouldn't be impossible. Overall good purchase. My other desk is a gargantuan Bush Corsa L-shaped desk that is covered in a printer and other "stuff". This Renate desk is going in the living room and I like the skeletal aspect of it to keep it minimal. Thanks, O.

My husband and I love the look and feel of the Trivecca Home Myra Industrial pieces. We purchased the desk and bookcases along with the end tables for our family room. It is exactly what we were looking for, however we were disappointed because the attachment screws on the bookcases and end tables strip easily. We are also concerned as all the pieces are off gassing a terrible smell that burns our eyes. We have been wiping it down with vodka and vinegar in hopes it gets better. I highly recommend the furniture if you have the time to off gas it in your garage or outside in the sun.

Received this Murphy Fold-out Desk quickly from Overstock. Solid and Heavy and well-made. However, there was a chip with missing veneer on the edge of the desk's table that was stained at the factory to cover the flaw. The overall staining on the outside of the unit was good but some areas inside were missed. VERY heavy item required more screws to make sure it would be securly attached to the wall. We drilled more holes through the back panel of the unit and attached to studs in the wall to secure it. Murphy beds were a clever design and so is this desk. You can fold it up and get it out of the way when not in use, and quickly fold it down when you need a desk for writing, crafts, or to use your laptop on. When closed, I place a bench underneath the unit, and use the same bench to sit on when it's open.

This table is exactly what we were looking for. Simple in design but the unexpected surprise was in the set-up. The top was already assembled and I had this together in about 10 minutes. The drawer is an added little bonus as this is a pretty minimalist table. Still trying to figure out how to keep the cables looking clean! Furniture like this is what it is as far as the overall quality but I find that if you aren't moving it and disassembling it a lot, it should give you long service. And the price was terrific as I'd searched for a very long time before finding this table. Overstock.com was the greatest too. I ordered the black table and when it arrived, it said black on the outside of the box but was in fact the white table. I was worried that the return would be a real hassle due to the size of the box but from the printing of the return label to Overstock.com sending me a new (yea black) table in record time, it was a fairly painless process.

The desk itself was great, but beware - I received with no instructions and one piece split near the seam. Fortunately, I'm a little handy and have experience putting things together - so I took the challenge to put it together on my own, using the photo as a guide. It worked - and I was lucky that the split piece of wood was facing inside the desk so it's not seen from the outside. I'm just hoping it doesn't cause a structural issue in the future. Overall, it's the perfect desk for my 6 year old daughter's room. Just wish it would have been a better buying experience.

I have had a makeshift "dressing table" in my bathroom for years. But has seen teenage girls come and go and now has gone to ist just reward. I needed a replacement, but the area it was to go in was odd sized, so a regular bathroom vanity/seating area was too deep. I had started looking for a desk. I wanted one with drawers that would hold my hair dryer. I also wanted a real drawer...not a keyboard pull-out..in which to put my medications and everyday necessities. This desk really fits the bill.. It is a tad deeper than I would have preferred, but the rest of it makes up for that. I put 90% of it together by myself, calling on my husband when I needed to add the leg pieces. A few reviewers said the instructions were sketchy, but if you are pretty good with numbers and letters, it's a no-brainer. There was not a flaw on it. The exact number of nuts and bolts were included. It was packaged well and delivered as promised. The only thing I did....'cause let's face i it this is not 100% solid maple or any other hard wood at the price...was to our local glass supplier and spend $** on a table protector for it....and I couldn't be happier. Forgot to mention, the metal glides on the drawers work like silk. If I wanted to nit-pick the only thing I would want was something to cover the two holes at the front part of the desk where the drawers go in. You can see the hardware. There are plugs for the outside, but none for these two fairly visible spots. Otherwise....a great purchase!!!

I really like the clean, modern look of this desk. However with the heavy box of drawers way on one side, you need to be careful not to overweight the desk to the right or it might tip over. And the box and drawers don't assemble very well. I don't expect to be focusing on the drawers all that much, so it's probably OK, but the pieces just don't fit right. From the photo, I had assumed that the drawers and the box were steel, but they are black-painted pressed wood. The box is nice and long but the drawers only go a bit past halfway. Behind the drawers, behind a piece of wood, is a large empty space - kind of a secret compartment. But when everything is assembled the secret compartment is completely enclosed and you can't get into it, so it's not really any fun. The first thing I noticed when opening the box was a zillion loose teeny pieces of styrofoam. They stick to my hands and pants and all the desk pieces and everything else and are difficult to get off. However they fall off as I walk around the house. I am going to be picking up these things for months. This is an extremely difficult piece of furniture to put together. I'm no stranger to assembling furniture but this one was really tough. Two main reasons: insufficient instructions and poor manufacturing. I had pictured the drawers as coming in one piece but there are 28 separate pieces that need to be assembled and the hardware bag has 80+ screws and whatnot, the vast majority of which are for the drawers and box. In several places the screw holes don't line up well, and the slots cut for the drawer bottoms don't line up either. The instructions have no text, just diagrams. Expect to use a magnifying glass to try to see the small details. I recommend looking ahead at the other steps so that you can understand where you are going. You really need to be thinking all the time to get this done correctly. The sides of the top and bottom drawers are separately labeled and even though they look the same, they aren't. Be sure to use the labeled pieces they indicate. The difference is the near invisible holes for attaching the rails on the outside of the drawers. You can't tell this from the diagram, but one drawer has the rails towards the top of the side and the other has the rails towards the bottom. Since the drawer sides and bottom fit so poorly together I needed to loosely assemble all the pieces first and then tighten them as far as I could. I tried first putting the sides and back together but I couldn't get the bottom in. I had to loosen everything, slide the bottom in, and then only tighten things so far. Each of the four rails needs to be separated into two parts, with one installed on the drawer and the other on the box. It must have taken me a half hour to figure out how to detach the drawer rail. If you extend the rails (slide them to their full length) and look closely on the inside of the narrowest rail there is a little latch you can push that lets the narrow rail slide out. Be careful to attach the drawer rail the right way around. It's easy to get it backwards. There are these round locks that rotate and grab a post. I'd seen these before so I knew how they worked, but if you haven't then be sure to play with one a bit before installing it so that you understand it. When you push in the round lock, you need to have the small arrow pointed in the direction of the hole the post will be inserted into. They all tighten by rotating clockwise. I needed a large phillips head screwdriver to do this. There was one point putting on the top of the box where you need to tighten four of these locks inside the secret compartment but my large screwdriver wouldn't fit lengthwise to get to two of the locks. Fortunately I had a large philips tip that I could hook to an extender which fit in a hex socket driver that I could use to tighten them. I assume you can buy a large tip phillips screwdriver that's shorter, if necessary. It has to be a large tip. I tried a medium tipped screwdriver and it rotated in the lock and started stripping out bits of metal so I had to stop that right away. At one point the box is pictured rotated 180 degrees and in another it's flipped over bottom up, neither of which are immediately obvious, so look for that. You use the locks mentioned above to secure the top of the box but it's different for the bottom. There are these plastic pieces installed in round holes very similar to the locks but you don't rotate them to secure the bottom. You can't get to them once the bottom is on. Instead they have a screw hole in them and you drive screws through the bottom into these things. You need to make sure that when you assemble the pieces of the box that you have all the sides oriented with the preinstalled plastic pieces towards the bottom. Before putting the bottom on you do need to make sure they are rotated to the correct alignment with the screw hole facing out the hole drilled in the wood. A couple of mine weren't aligned correctly and I had to adjust them. They indicate attaching the box to the legs before attaching the glass desktop to the legs. This seemed like a bad idea to me. I put on the desktop first to add weight so that the drawer box wouldn't overbalance the legs and tip the thing over. I found it completely impossible to install the desktop the way they picture it, putting it on top of the legs. I couldn't get the screws up through the legs. Instead I put the desktop upside down on the floor and the legs upside down on top of it and let gravity help me get the screws in. It still took a fair amount of fiddling but it worked. I put the box on last.
